Collectives Responding to Covid-19

We've been humbled and impressed by the 270 groups actively using Open Collective for COVID relief efforts. Together, they've raised close to 2 million USD to support their causes.

Open Collective and our Non Profit sister organizations have waived 100% of our fees on those funds as our contribution to the effort. 🙏

Open Call to Developers:

Modulo is looking for a technical partner to support families impacted by school closures.
When schools closed in early March, Eric Ries and Manisha Snoyer set up a hotline to support families impacted by School Closures. They've helped 100k families impacted by school closures. Modulo has recently joined Open Collective Foundation and they are looking for a developer who can join them to support and inspire the millions of families who will be homeschooling in the fall.
